The 56th Annual Chesterton Art Fair will be held Saturday and Sunday
August 2-3 at Hawthorne Park in Porter, IN.
The hours of the fair are 10-5 each day and the admission charge is $5 per person for the entire event. Parking is free. Chesterton is located at the base on Lake Michigan, midway between the Michigan and Illinois borders.
90 artists from 11 states will be exhibiting artwork in a multitude of mediums - painting, drawing, photography, jewelry, sculpture, weaving, glass and pottery, to name a few.
The Golden Fingers, a Chesterton-based ukulele band, will perform each day at the Art Fair. Volunteers from local churches will be in charge of the food and beverage booths. A children's activity booth will allow kids the opportunity to create a piece of art.
Proceeds from the Chesterton Art Fair go to the Art Education Fund at the Chesterton Art Center. Over 1,000 children participate in art classes each year, creating projects and learning to appreciate and enjoy art in many forms. The Chesterton Art Center is located at 115 S. 4th St., Chesterton, IN 46304.
